Ninja Theory talks reboot and shows off unseen Dante art

Just two months ago, DmC: Devil May Cry was released and caused quite a ruckus. While this unique entry in the Devil May Cry franchise didn't exactly light up the charts, and remains a contentious title with series fans, at t...

Guide: DmC: Devil May Cry: Vergil's Downfall DLC
by Chris Carter

Vergil's Downfall is finally upon us, and after some Bloody Palace tips, I figured it would be a good idea to revisit DmC. When you think about it, tons of people let their games collect dust in a corner somewhere, waiting for potential DLC to come along -- but when they return, they don't find the experience to be a familiar one.

Vergil is sort of similar to Dante at a base level, but his add-on is completely different from the main campaign. Here are some tips to help acclimate yourself to Dante's brother.

Review: DmC: Devil May Cry: Vergil's Downfall
by Chris Carter

Ninja Theory had a lot to prove with DmC: Devil May Cry. Not only did they have to appease their fans, but they had to live up to an already existing passionate fanbase, who had come to expect a level of quality worth to the Devil May Cry name.

Depending on who you talked to, they either succeed, or they failed. Personally, I felt like it was somewhere in the middle. While DmC wasn't even close to the franchise pedigree, it was still very much a serviceable action game, and Ninja Theory's best offering to date.

Which brings us to the newest downloadable content after Bloody Palace, a brand new story starring Dante's brother Vergil. Vergil's Downfall is more of the same, and your mileage will drastically vary on how much you enjoyed DmC: Devil May Cry in the first place.

New releases: Construction finishes on SimCity photo
New releases: Construction finishes on SimCity
by Fraser Brown

This Monday heralds a week of mayoral responsibilities and the raiding of trap-laden tombs, both of which undoubtedly require similar skill sets. As much as I'm a big fan of Ms. Croft, and it seems like her latest outing is one of her best, I'm a tad more taken with managing a crazy little city.

I'll admit that I'm still not completely sold on SimCity, however. It certainly looks lovely, but I miss my water pipes and gargantuan utopias, and so many of the design choices seem to be aimed at people who are social butterflies, when I'm more of a grumpy moth. Regardless, I'm still rather excited about its imminent release, and will be doing my best to ensure that Beardtopia is the grottiest, most unfriendly city in all the land.

On top of SimCity and Tomb Raider, there are a plethora of other new releases demanding your attention this week. Two Naruto Shippunden titles drop, saturating the colorful, super-powered ninja market; Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk gives budding herbalists something to do on the PS3, while also searching for their lost sister; The Showdown Effect jumps out of a burning building and punches a vaguely German sounding villain in the face; and the 3DS gets a new Castlevania: Lords of Shadow title

You lot are getting spoiled this week. What's tempting you the most?

DmC: Devil May Cry's Bloody Palace tips and impressions photo
DmC: Devil May Cry's Bloody Palace tips and impressions
by Chris Carter

Capcom and Ninja Theory have recently provided a free add-on to DmC: Devil May Cry called the Bloody Palace, to help extend your replay value a bit.

For those of you who have never played a Devil May Cry game before, the Bloody Palace is an arena-like survival mode, where you face multiple levels of foes until you reach a set final end floor, and fight a final boss.

It's basically the Dark Realm from Onimusha franchise, and it's been in every game except for the first Devil May Cry.

The upcoming downloadable story content for DmC picks up right where the game finishes, so needless to say this will be one spoiler filled preview.     

At the end of DmC, Dante plunges his sword into Vergil and nearly kills the misguided brother. Vergil is spared, but he's left battered, bruised, and lost in a new realm that's closer to that of a hell-like dimension compared to the limbo areas that players went through as Dante.

Not only is Vergil badly hurt and lost in an unknown dimension, but he's also lost the amulet he was given by his parents, thus losing a good portion of his powers.

Asking which version of Dante is cooler photo
Asking which version of Dante is cooler
by Spencer Hayes

People seem to be in a state of perpetual butt-hurt over Dante's redesign in DMC: Devil May Cry. I guess people resist change in any capacity, but who cares what nerds think?

My team and I decided to hit the streets and learn what the people of America thought about Dante's new style. The results may surprise you.

Not-review: DmC: Devil May Cry on PC
by Jim Sterling

DmC: Devil May Cry has been out for a while, and I think everybody's said what they need to say about it. Whether you're a supporter of the game, a hater of the game, or you were busy making up stories about human babies being shot in the game to have an opinion, it's out now, and everybody's had their say. 

As is so often the case, the PC version of the game has not received quite so much press, despite being, in several ways, the version most worth checking out. Fortunately, we gave this forgotten, recently released alternative a try, and can confirm it's definitely got a few things over on its more widely marketed console brethren.
